Make the most of a lovely viewIf you’re lucky enough to have a garden with a pleasing view, enjoy it to the max with a glazed summerhouse. This one looks out over a river and was installed so the owners had somewhere to write and paint. Blinds on the house side allow them to block out all reminders of those pressing household jobs and gaze across the water instead.

Give it some ropeVictorian-style rope-top edging gives a classic look and is a good choice if you’re searching for something that’s in keeping with a period property. You can buy these clay designs in either a straight style or as a curved edging, and many come with a mowing strip – or lip that protrudes out to the lawn – which sits flush with the ground to make it easier to mow up to the edge.
